Name Dave Russell
About Still very hungry after all these years

Seasoned A/C programmer and air talent. I have successfully programmed three A/C stations including WARM in York/Lancaster and WLEV Allentown.

Country programming experience at WCTO in Allentown and on air at WCAT in Harrisburg and WIOV in Lancaster/Reading.

I have morning drive experience in both A/C and Country.

Talent coaching, strong music scheduling skills, station imaging, and promotions.

I am still a strong believer in the power of terrestrial radio for both our listeners and clients.

If results are what's important to you, I'm your guy.
